    I just cannot think of another reason as to why you can only wake up your S7 with Assistant, when the screen is off, while it's charging.
    I've researching this "issue" for a few days. So far, I only know of three Android phones that can be awaken with "ok google" Google Assistant: Pixel, Pixel XL, LG G5....

    I've also spent a lot of time trying to figure this out and have finally gave up.. It really sucks because this is one of my favorite features and it worked on my V20.

    I have a Galaxy Note 4 (T-mobile) running the latest firmware and it's on Android 6.0.1.

    When I say "Ok Google" to my phone locked screen, it'd wake up, but then I'd get stuck on the Lock Screen. I'd have to manually unlock it (I use the Swipe Pattern Lock). That beats the purpose of operating Google Assistant in a hands-free manner, especially when I'm driving.

    The "Trusted Voice" option is missing from my Google Assistant/Now settings. "Ok Google from any screen" is available and is turned on. I remember back then I used to have the "Trusted Voice" option, but maybe in the last few versions, it's been removed? I'm not sure.

    Old thread I know, but the assistant still sucks and sleeps way to much. Lol.
    I've been running the iOS 11betas on my iPhone 7 and rocking a new and improved Siri. Siri nails perfectly what I've been trying to get the assistant to do ever since it came out, mainly wake up when I need it to!
    Spending more and more time with my iPhone 7 and sad because I much prefer Android, but I need stuff Android isn't giving me so that's it and I won't buy another Android device till I've thoroughly checked it out. iOS 11 is a smooth upgrade tho, I like it.

    I struggled with this as well for quite a while and just now realized how to get the job done lol. Just ask Bixby to launch Google assistant. Bixby will open your phone and have it ready for you to tell your assistant whatever you'd like to do hope this helps

    I'm probably a little late to this thread but can anyone offer some advice....

    I'm walking down the street, Bluetooth earbuds in....I just want to be able to tell my GS7 to make a call, or play some music.... Phone's in my shirt pocket and my hands are full....I just want to do this without having to reach for my phone.... Can it be done with this phone? Or do I go get a new one?

    Google assistant I'd pretty much useless, an I right?

    If you have to touch the phone to wake it up in order to use this, well, just seems counter intuitive for a helpful and supposedly voice activated assistant. Like having my office secretary asleep in the next room and I have to go nudge her to wake her up first Lol! Just SMH as this assistant continues to disappoint. BTW, secretary , "Your Fired"! I'm about to fire my assistant as well.
    LOL! Exactly! I an spool glad some people see the absurdity that Samsung doesn't offer this feature. it's kind of a deal breajer. ai think they did in preparation for what would be the Bixby reveal. Fair enough--- but I'm stuck with their S7 which they are not allowing to use Bixby. Thanks, Samsung.

    PS: I literally laughed out loud at your analogy. lol

    I'm over iProducts but to me it's totally relevant here to point out when the "competition" does something better... such as... updating phones (Android sucks at this... I mean seriously.

    Anyway, it's a gadget.

    Exactly. Had the same experience the other day in the store with an arm full of groceries. Google Assistant now downgraded to only a bit better than a party trick in my mind.
